Check out this amazing and unique artist collaboration cookbook!
This book is a collection of recipes and accompanying woodcut prints as an offering for Unity Week to remember and honour the lives lost in the March 15 terror attacks. Titled Nā Te Kai Ka Paihere; One Table, One World, the cookbook features recipes from the diverse cultural groups in its creative community.
The cookbook started with a small seed of an idea, and has since grown into a wide reaching, community-based effort. It is more than just a selection of recipes and artwork; it is a celebration of diversity, and of the nourishing, comforting, and unifying power of food.
The project was led by Sudi Dargipour and Ana Craw, who facilitate Nūr, a space for Muslim women at Ōtautahi Creative Spaces to explore creativity for wellbeing.
Ana and Sudi hope that the book will be used as a talking point, and that, as Ana says, it will emphasise “the significance of art and food, and how that affects wellbeing and can grow community.”
A limited number of copies will be available for our creative community and friends during Unity Week, which runs Wednesday, March 15 – Wednesday, March 22.
The project received generous funding from Te Korowai Whetū, Social Cohesion Fund (Ministry of Social Development).
